Chapel Hill, North Carolina-AP-- North Carolina head coach Carl Torbush says he doesn't know exactly what to expect when his Tar Heels host Tulsa tomorrow night.

The Golden Hurricane will be playing its first game under new head coach Keith Burns.

There are questions about Tulsa's ground game, since none of its top three tailbacks have a single carry or rushing yard in the college ranks.

But the question marks aren't confined to Tulsa.

The Tar Hills are also green in the backfield. And no one knows for sure how quarterback Ronald Curry and linebacker Brandon Spoon will perform after season-ending injuries last year.

Torbush has also never won a season-opener as head coach -- losing his first two on last-second field goals.
